Rubbing/grinding sound when wheel turned fully

When I turn my wheel almost fully to fully, I hear some sort of rubbing/semi-grinding/groaning type sound. Does anyone else get this? Is this normal? (lol doesn't seem normal to me)

If you think there might be a problem with the system and you have the time I would suggest having your vehicle checked over by your dealer. I would also make sure to take a tech with you on a test drive or that your replicate this issue yourself to make sure they hear it. Let us know how things go for you.

The groaning sound is likely from the power steering pump. There are some reasons for this but most of the time it means the pump is low on fluid. Why are you turning the wheel lock to lock? Full lock is not good on the high pressure side of the power steering pump, especially if the engine is still cold.
Regardless, take it to the dealer.
